Drawing Tuesday - Docklands Museum

Attracted by the tools, I somehow got fixated on the saw -
and spent an inordinate amount of time trying to get the proportions right from this angle -
Lots of measuring ... and still not quite right. But there was more white space to fill...
and more tools to draw, such as these sail-makers seam rubbers -
and hammers and pincers and scrapers and the little knife and fork set, its loss undoubtedly mourned by its owner -
Meanwhile Sue was revelling in the huge capstan -
and the blacksmith's tools, and their shadows -

Must admit the blacksmith's tools brought on a feeling of "oh where do you start" - so seeing that Sue had bitten off just what she could chew, working steadily along the row, strikes me as a good approach.
